Whereas DC had the ballet, the opera, the National Gallery, the Kennedy Center, Delaware has the Monster Mile. Yep, it’s the Dover International Speedway where the likes of um, well, whoever the famous Nascar race car drivers are, race their cars.
This weekend is the opener to the Nascar season (I don’t even know if I’m saying this properly) and people have been camped out by the Speedway for weeks. Literally, even ten days ago when we drove by the track we saw Nascar die-hards in their RVs and campers just biding their time before the race. Seeing this made us wonder what we’re missing. So Grey and I decided what better way to spend a gorgeous Saturday afternoon than to have our eardrums blown out in a stadium with 100,000 men in sleeveless tank tops. It’s Nascar time!
The only problem is that word on the street here in DE is that the Speedway’s alcohol rules were just amended. And people are PISSED. Now, fans may not bring in more than three cases of beer per person into the stands. Yes, ONLY three cases PER person. That’s it! Apparently they’ve really tightened things up with this new strict policy. Before, Nascar junkies could tote in as much beer as their suburned bodies could carry, buy now they’ll have to content themselves with a mere 72 cans per person. Shucks.
